Fake Jameis

June 21st, 2015

Jameis rookieJoe’s been studying Jameis Winston closely since attending his first college game in Pittsburgh, long before he was “America’s Quarterback.”

And Joe’s enjoyed scrutinizing Jameis at the NFL Scouting Combine and at Bucs practices. Joe’s comprehensive Tuesday minicamp practice notes referenced a poised pump fake and subsequent completion over the middle to wide receiver hopeful Adam Humphries. Jameis appears to throw a tighter, stronger ball when he does this.

The Buccaneers appeared intrigued by this, too, and shared the Jameis fake-and-throw via the YouTube video below.

It’s stuff like this, on Father’s Day, that has Joe aching to see Jameis perform against real competition. Tampa Bay kicks off the preseason in Minnesota in 55 short days.

(Astute observers will note that Jameis ridiculously is performing with second- and third- teamers.)

    Nice play …….. but by my count (one thousand one, one thousand two etc.) and my stopwatch, it took more than four, and almost five seconds before the ball left his hands. We’ll see if the OL line can give him that much time this year, because neither McCown nor Glennon enjoyed that luxury very often the last two years.

    That is my biggest concern with Winston. At FSU, he was surrounded by superior talent (29 players drafted by the NFL over the last three years), and he very often enjoyed a HUGE pocket, and several seconds to throw.

    Seriously ?? A little shoulder roll while he stairs down the receiver excites you that much ??

  3. The Real Malloy Says:

    Hey Ray Ray, For us serious fans, yes, underwear football in June does get us excited. Go troll somewhere else…

  4. Jamaica Buc Says:

    I don’t think there was any “trolling”
    I agree. the fake wasn’t that dramatic.
    Have you seen some of that fellow up in New England’s fakes ???

    “That is my biggest concern with Winston. At FSU, he was surrounded by superior talent (29 players drafted by the NFL over the last three years), and he very often enjoyed a HUGE pocket, and several seconds to throw”

    I saw every game Winston played at FSU. He had lots of time in his first season, not so much in his 2nd though. There weer many instances where he was running for his life. So no worries on my end.

    You’re actually counting seconds from that video? How the hell did you do that? I tried and watched 3 times and still can’t figure when he actually released the ball. Plus besides this is underwear football…..no worries.

    You have to consider its in slow motion. Everything would look better at full speed. That shoulder roll would be much quicker and the ball would come out much faster. No where 4-5 seconds.

  7. #4 Says:

    No where near 4-5 seconds.

  8. 5th best Qb in the NFL South Says:

    With the first pick in the 2016 draft the Tamap Bay Buccaneers select QB Christian Hackenburg…..Jameis isn’t even Central America’s quarterback.

    LOL! The ONLY time McCown (or Glennon) enjoyed more than four seconds, unmolested, was when they were standing on the sidelines.
    We have to hope that Lovie/Licht puts together a better O-line than last years’ version. In fact, Jameis (and Glennon) are praying that the 2015 O-line is very much improved. The good news is that it can hardly be worse.
    With a better defense hitting the field (fewer points-against and more offensive opportunities), a ‘real’ OC AND QB coach (offensive schemes designed for specific defenses), there will be no excuses for this Lovie/Licht team if they do not show improvement in the second half of the season (learning curve in first half).

    You’re kidding me right?? That excites you. Wow you must live a very boring life.

  11. Waterboy Says:


    That video isn’t full-speed it’s not full slow motion but definitely not full speed. Watch how slow the ball moves when the center hikes it to Winston.

  12. Buc-A-New Says:

    Lol at joe borderlining a conniption at JW working out with the 2nd and 3rd string. He is a rookie after all.

  13. Vic Says:

    Joe’s just keeping it real. Winston with the second team is like Brad Pitt talking to fat chicks.

  14. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Joe, eat a snickers and calm the hell down. If you get all hot in the pants after a slight pump fake and simple completion you will desensitize your regular crowd to most things Jameis (obviously not the Jameis Mafia).

  15. WS99 Says:

    Joe the only one busting out multiple articles today and ya complaining? Smdh.

  16. dave Says:

    BUCS STAFF: jameis is the quarterback you selected with the first overall pick. this is a win now league. the thing that worries people about rookies is lack of experience. so give him every single rep and more to prepare him for this season. $%^& mike glennon. i want jameis ready for week 1 of this year. not another season of a crappie record and hearing people talking about the potential with the bucs players. just stop trying to play games with the team and the fans by having glennon out there like there is a real competition going on in tampa at qb

  17. Couch Fan Says:

    I find it comical that so many ppl try to tell Joe how he should react to anything Jameis. Lol, not everybody wants to be sour pusses like yous.

  18. Buccanstopit Says:

    America’s QB? You give out titles like 2nd term presidents give out pardons.

  19. bucslifeforme Says:

    It doesn’t take much to excite a real bucs fan after the load of garbage they have put on display for the last 6 or 7 years.

  20. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Speaking for Pablo

    “Pablo wishes all his Buc hombres a happy Father’s Day…..Pablo is a Father many times over (Pablo won’t say how many) because Pablo doesn’t want to be stereotyped like other Pablo’s….but lets just say Pablo likes the baby-making process and Pablo has found fertile partner(s).
    While Buc-A-New is out “walleye” fishing…Pablo is enjoying his time doing his best to make another bebita or bebe. Pablo has no problem admitting to his faults.”

  21. dave Says:

    come on guys why all this hate for jameis. isnt this what we’ve been waiting for for so long. im from ny and am so excited for anything bucs related even if most of my life this teams been as tough as it gets to stay a fan of. couldn’t imagine if i actually lived in tampa. all im saying is a qb can actually win you a game so why all the hate that we finally got the best college qb for the last two years

  22. Buc1987 Says:

    WalkdaPlank….I like that name. Jameis Mafia. Has a nice ring to it.

    I elect myself as The Don.

  23. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    JW is with the 2nd string so he can learn how to be a pro. And not at the expense of our 1st team defense and offense. Glennon knows how to run off season ota’s and will challenge the D more at this point. JW will be with the 1st team at training camp.

    And Joe you built that pump fake up way too much. WhAt does his jock strap taste like?? Cuz you are all up in his ish!!

  24. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    I do understand its the end of June. Not a whole lot to get excited about right now

  25. Buc1987 Says:

    FuNkYxMuNkEy ….it’s good to see that someone has the inside track as to how they are running things at 1 Buc.

  26. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    I’m not a football or slow motion video expert, but anyone who thinks it took more than 2 and a half- 3 seconds for Winston to throw that pass is crazy.

  27. Pawel Says:

    Wow I didn’t expect a white WR

  28. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    87, I’m not sure you can elect yourself a”Don”. You can proclaim yourself Dictator of the Jameis Revolution! I’m on board with that! Lol

  29. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Pawel, as a Fan, I didn’t expect you not to know he was white. WRs can be white. It’s not against physics or anything.

  30. James Walker Says:

    Working with second and third team guys is important because all of them are just an injury away from being a starter. Chemistry must be established with all players.

  31. Brandon Says:


    Wow, how stupid could you be? The video is clearly on slo-Mo and according to the far more accurate timer on YouTube, the ball was thrown BEFORE the video hit the 4 second mark. Slow motion, you freaking idiot. You should be embarrassed for making such a stupid an easily disproved statement.

  32. Fsuking Says:

    Future hall of fame QB Jameis Winston laughs at 5th Best QB in the NFC South for saying Christian Hackenburg will be a #1 overall pick. Hackenburg is a lot like other Qb’s who have had terrible college seasons… He is terrible!

    The Real Malloy Says
    “Hey Ray Ray, For us serious fans, yes, underwear football in June does get us excited. Go troll somewhere else…”

    If anything, Winston’s release time should be sped up, considering he can’t be hit.

    See now, we’re edging closer to seeing his faults made clear, and when that happens I’ll be saying “I told you so” a lot.
